GV II

Granary, later London Grist Mills, 1866. Stock brick with
hipped slate roof with skylights, partly surmounted by timber
clerestory, possibly for housing a pneumatic grain intake,
seen from river behind plain parapet with coping.
PLAN: substantial rectangular building.
EXTERIOR: 5 storeys, 5 bays to street, 7 bays to river (2
blind) and 4 bays to east return. Street front slightly
convex, probably following the alignment of previous buildings
on site. Full height hatch ranks to street, river and east
elevations, that to river with hipped hood over the hoist.
Smallish 2-light wood mullioned windows with gauged brick
segmental arches on all floors. Circular tie-rod plates to
each elevation.
INTERIOR: internally construction is of timber with spreader
capped posts supporting the floors and open timber staircases.
A series of wooden chutes is said to remain in situ,
descending from the top floor to the 1st floor terminating in
a movable table system leading to a hand winch by the loading
hatch. The chutes are provided with a weighted box breaking
system.
HISTORICAL NOTE: became the London Grist Mills in 1891 and
remained as such up to 1940.
Prominent riverside site with its exposed east return
elevation. At time of survey, most windows broken or boarded
up.
